Housing a five-strong department, FerradaNehme has been developing preventative models and systems for its clients since 2008; and in 2013, the firm formally launched a compliance practice. The team is highly rated for its advice on complex compliance systems, in relation to competition, criminal law, environmental matters and data protection; and in 2020 broadened its practice through the inclusion of technology matters (in relation to privacy impact assessments). With a significant criminal litigation background, ‘efficient and decisive‘ team head Rafael Collado is consistently sought out for his assistance with internal control procedures, criminal and administrative sanctions that apply to company directors, and new legislation. Also on hand is senior associate Lucía Álvarez, who advises on criminal-related compliance matters.
